Buffett type plays

Buffett type plays

    Oversold on over-reaction "CVS" down nearly -7.5

    REVlon still a value play "REV"

    BRK.b will become cheap enough for the average joe to buy shares.

    50-1 split. I expect a big jump in BRK.b shares prior to split and after split.

I agree with your view on CVS.  I had a position in CVS and upon seeing the stock drop 20%, I bought more shares.  I feel that the company was reasonably priced before, and now they announce that it had a $3 billion net contract loss (+1.4 bil, - 4.5 bil).  This isn't good, but by no means does it decrease company value by 20% like the immediately share price drop would make one believe. 

 I have no idea where this stock is going to go in the next few weeks or months, but in the long run, this 20% drop is going to look silly.  CVS apparently even predicted such an over-reaction beacuse today, the same day they released this bad news, they announced an authorization of a $2 billion common stock buyback.  So they're keeping the option open for themselves to buy stock back on this over-reaction.

Revlon is NOWHERE near a Buffett play.. he would never ever ever buy a company who's book value is so far in the negative or had nearly 1.3 billion in debt!
